Our flight out of LAX yesterday was delayed due to the lightning storms in Los Angeles. The delay was enough that we almost missed our connection to Haiti. We are grateful that the Lord was faithful to get us to the plane on time so that we could travel together as a team to Haiti. We arrived at 9 am and made our way to the school.
After some time in fellowship we completed orientation, sorted the supplies we brought along and put together 55 personal hygiene bags for the women's prison visit scheduled for later this week. We also visited the new school facility to begin coordinating the logistics of electrical work, completing the chicken coop and painting some of the completed rooms.
For those of us that were here last year it was nice to reestablish relationships and have that be the focus instead of being task oriented. The people are the ministry and the reason why we are here. Our relationships are the foundation of our witness so although the day was not packed full of ministry related tasks it felt like a truly productive day.
The team asks for prayer for resilience and perseverance in the heat and rainy weather. We are seeking the Lord for the things he wants us to accomplish this week and be obedient to his instruction.
After 16 hours of travel we are looking forward to a good night's rest and our visit tomorrow morning to Calvary Chapel Port Au Prince.
